FROM THE PRESIDENT'S DESK 



In 1957, Robert Frost inscribed a 
volume of his poems entitled A Witness 
Tree to Donald Winslow "In acknowled- 
ment of what I owe his father for the name 
of this book." Donald Winslow, currently 
a member of the Lasell Board of Trustees, 
is the son of Guy M. Winslow, late 
President of Lasell and a friend of Robert 
Frost, who had made many visits to the 
College. As a matter of fact, Frost was 
an honorary member of the Lasell Class of 
1941. His picture appears in the 1941 year 
book facing a page on which is printed the 
text of his poem "Come In." This was 
the first appearance of the poem in print, 
and it was one of those to be included 
later in the volume bearing the title 
A Witness Tree. A witness tree is one 
marked by a woodsman's axe to indicate 
a land boundary; and the particular piece 
of a witness tree that President Winslow 
showed to Robert Frost is currently on 
exhibit, along with the inscribed copy of 
the book, in the Brennan Library at Lasell. 

The point of these remarks is not 
merely to indicate Lasell's association 
with one of America's greatest literary 
figures or to remind readers of an 
interesting piece of memorabilia on view 
in the Brennan Library. It is rather to 
suggest certain parallels and affinities 
between fundamental interests of Robert 
Frost and fundamental aspects of Lasell's 
past, present, and future. 

Like many of Frost's other poems, 
"Come In" deals with contrasts, choices, 
and paradoxes. The poem tells us that the 
sound of thrush music beckons the poet 
into the dark woods; but, as he says, 
". . . no, I was out for stars: I would not 
come in." Those of you who are familiar 
with Frost's poetry know his interest in 
choices and paradoxes as they permeate 
life, his interest in such choices as that 
represented in "The Road Not Taken," 
where the narrator must decide between 
two roads that diverge in a wood, or in the 
temptation in "Stopping By Woods on a 
Snowy Evening" to linger in that peaceful 
spot — a temptation that must be weighed 
against the force that urges him onwards 



because of the miles he has to go before 
he sleeps, because of the obligations that 
life imposes on him. 

There is, too, the curious contrast or 
conflict in the famous poem "Mending 
Wall," which on one occasion I heard him 
read and comment on afterward. With 
that characteristic twinkle in his eye, he 
observed that many people who read 
that poem misread his intention. They 
picked up from the text the line given to 
the narrator's neighbor, a farmer — a line 
that reads "Good fences make good 
neighbors" — and assumed this repre- 
sented the theme of the poem. Assuming 
that this line represented Frost's con- 
victions, they missed altogether the main 
point of the poem, a point embodied in a 
line ascribed to the narrator: "Something 
there is that doesn't love a wall." 

Challenge and Revitalization 

Like the human situation represented 
in "Mending Wall," with its conflict be- 
tween being bound and being free, the 
history of colleges, Lasell among them, 
has been marked by contrasts and 
conflicts. Perhaps no conflict has been 
more characteristic of collegiate life than 
that between aspiration and limitation. 

I once heard Frost say, in relation to 
his fondness for writing rhymed verse, 
that the very challenge of the rhyme was 
something he enjoyed. Writing without 
the limitations or constraints of rhyme, he 
felt, was like playing tennis without a net. 
At Lasell, too, we have our challenges; 
we do not intend to play tennis without 
a net; we do intend to enter into our 
particular form of competition with un- 
diminished energy. Our goal is to excel in 
our educational enterprise. 

In this connection, I am put in mind 
of the first major talk I delivered to a 
Lasell audience — my inaugural talk, I 
believe — the theme of which was the 
conflict of the head and the heart. At that 
time I pointed out that before us lay some 
very difficult choices to make — choices 
intensified by the severe financial crisis 
that had been creeping up on colleges for 



some time but that had just then burst out 
with a violent impact. My point, briefly, 
was that a certain degree of hardheaded- 
ness would be required of Lasell, that we 
would have to part with some of the 
traditions, practices, and even people 
connected with the cherished past in 
order that the institution might be pre- 
served. In many instances the objectivity 
of the head would necessarily have to 
prevail over the promptings of the heart. 
At the same time I expressed the hope 
that humaneness could characterize the 
management of the college's affairs even 
as decisions affecting its ultimate welfare 
were being made. 

It took no great prophetic power to 
see that this was going to be necessary, 
as indeed it has been. Moreover, in 
reflecting on the recent past, it is evident 
that the casting off of the old that 
invariably accompanies the revitalization 
of a college had begun on at least one 
level before I became president. It should 
be remembered that the dramatic re- 
shaping of Lasell's physical plant began 
several years ago with the construction 
of the Valentine Dining Room and the 
Woodland Hall Annex, and more recently 
with the building of New Dorm in the 
Rockwell Woods and the magnificent 
Library on the central campus. Finally, 
just this year another new residential 
building, McClelland Hall, has been 
opened in the Rockwell Woods. 

The completion of this most recent 
addition to our campus marks what is 
undoubtedly the most striking change in 
the outward appearance of Lasell. At the 
very moment I am writing these words, 
our own particular Witness Tree — 
Bragdon Hall — is being removed from its 
site. But rather than look upon the razing 
of Bragdon Hall as the loss of something 
deeply cherished, I hope we can see it 
as a symbol of what helped originally to 
make Lasell great and what in its demise 
signals the rebirth of the College. To 
watch the demolition is painful. But at 
the same time it conjures up the image 
of the phoenix and the generating of a 
new and more vigorous institution from 
the ashes of old Bragdon. 



Historically, Lasell as it was embodied 
in Bragdon Hall was a distinguished 
educational pioneer and has always been 
in the forefront of higher education 
among two year colleges. Clearly it is 
the purpose of the present Board of 
Trustees, of the alumnae and the faculty, 
of the student body and the administration 
to do everything possible to sustain 
Lasell in its excellence and to make of 
it in fact the leading two-year college in 
the nation. To extract a phrase from one 
of Shakespeare's sonnets and to alter it 
to our purposes, we may say that we are 
the "Stewards of our College's 
Excellence." 



Expedite and Strengthen 

To carry out our stewardship with 
the fullest measure of responsibility 
requires much more, of course, than 
erecting buildings, though we should not 
underestimate the importance of much- 
needed buildings. Still, we must develop 
the College not only in terms of its 
physical plant but also its faculty strength 
and the support and opportunities given 
to our students. 

To accomplish our goal requires, 
naturally, managerial planning on a 
comprehensive scale. When I arrived at 
Lasell in 1970, I requested the Board of 
Trustees to approve the establishing of a 
new administrative structure that would 
expedite and strengthen institutional 
management. The Board readily granted 
permission, and we now have what I 
believe is a strong administrative struc- 
ture, with three capable deans charged 
respectively with academic affairs, student 
affairs, and administrative affairs. This 
structure, with able people in the key 
positions, enables us to guide the College 
on an operational level intelligently and 
productively. 

The Faculty, under the direction of 
the Dean of Academic Affairs, maintains 
an on-going and vigilant review of the 
curriculum and of academic standards, 
measuring both against the abilities, 
needs, and expectations of our students, 
as well as against the realities of the 



outside world and professional standards 
of excellence. At times when young people 
are often moved to act on impulse or by 
the promptings of impatience, Lasell has 
generally been able to proceed towards 
solutions to problems by way of reasoned 
discourse. By the establishment of 
commissions representing the several 
constituencies of the College family — 
students, faculty, trustees, parents, 
alumnae, and administration — we have 
been able to discuss issues central to 
college living, such as the in loco parentis 
concept, and to arrive at reasonable 
conclusions about appropriate policies 
for the College to adopt. 

Economies and Education 

Administratively, the College was put 
under the heavy burden of trimming 
operating costs so that we might continue 
as a viable operation without damaging 
the quality of educational programs. 
Some of the required changes in manage- 
ment were dramatic and, indeed, 
traumatic. For example, within the past 
two years we have gone to outside 
contract services in regard to both 




housekeeping and food service. This has 
meant parting company with many Lasell 
employees, some of whom had been with 
the College for years and years. Every 
effort was made to effect the changes as 
humanely as possible; but some of the 
changes were undeniably in the category 
of those head-heart conflicts that are 
bound, in the process of being resolved, 
to produce pain at the same time that 
they are curing economic ills. Two years 
ago administrative salaries were frozen 
for a twelve-month period; last year 
faculty salaries above a certain level were 
frozen. The economic stringencies that 
affected the whole nation did not spare 
Lasell, and rigorous measures were 
required of us to keep the College 
operationally stable. But we have been 
able to achieve stability; and what is 
more, in the interest of sustaining quality, 
we have taken such steps as reducing our 
debt service and providing for a con- 
solidation of our physical plant so that at 
the same time we are effecting operational 
stability, we are channeling as many 
funds as possible into educational pro- 
grams and instructional costs. 

While all this was going on, we were 
faced last year with the required tenth- 
year revaluation of the College by our 
accrediting agency, the New England 
Association of Schools and Colleges. 
This was for many of us — indeed for all 
of us one way or another — a time and 
energy-consuming enterprise. But we 
emerged from it stronger than ever and 
with a very laudatory report from the 
evaluating commission. We feel, con- 
sequently, that we have demonstrated our 
ability to adjust our operations to the 
necessities and rigors of the times that 
are characterized by financial stringency, 
including a diminishing of Federal support 
to higher education and a doubtful situa- 
tion with respect to state support. 

At the same time we are deeply 
aware that it takes continuing watchful- 
ness and the most careful kind of planning 
to preserve our stability on the one hand 
and to encourage growth on the other. I 
am not calling for growth in size because 
I do not believe that is our objective. 



Smallness is undeniably one of our 
primary assets. So when I speak of 
growth, I mean growth in quality. 

As you might expect, the kind of 
growth to which I refer, the improvements 
in the life and condition of the College, do 
not occur in a hit or miss fashion. Rather 
they evolve from plans drawn up by the 
Long Range Planning Committee and 
endorsed by the Board of Trustees. In the 
spring of 1972, for example, the Long 
Range Planning Committee submitted a 
five-year plan to guide Lasell on a path 
of continuing excellence. The Board 
approved this plan in principle and since 
has approved certain modifications of it. 

Qualitative growth, moreover, has 
been given significant impetus recently by 
the generosity of devoted alumnae, who 
through bequests and other forms of gifts 
have made possible not only the improve- 
ment of the physical plant but also the 
augmentation of scholarship funds and 
the establishment of a Faculty Develop- 
ment Fund named in honor of Dr. Richard 
M. Packard, recently retired chairman of 
the Department of History. Though these 
may be modest beginnings, they are 
significant ones; and they testify to the 
confidence of the Board and of the 
Alumnae in the future of the College. 

Small College Environment 

Not long ago I had an opportunity to 
speak to a charitable organization on the 
subject of life in a women's junior college; 
and I made a considerable point at the 
outset of my remarks to distinguish be- 
tween the private two-year college and 
the public community college. I made this 
effort in part because a large segment of 
the general public fails to make this 
distinction. I think it is an important one; 
and making it helps in a way to emphasize 
the special virtues of a college like Lasell. 

The public community colleges, 
which are expanding at rates that shock 
even some of their original proponents, 
not to mention the taxpayers, are 
essentially commuter colleges with low 
tuition and with, for the most part, open 
enrollment policies. They emphasize 
bigness — that is, in physical plant size 



and enrollment. Unquestionably they 
serve a purpose, which I need not go 
into here. But some people feel that the 
expansion of low-tuition public institutions 
threatens the very survival of relatively 
expensive private colleges like Lasell. 
Others might even argue that private 
one-sex colleges are these days somewhat 
anachronistic anyway since an apparent 
stampede towards coeducation has been 
joined by so many traditionally one-sex 
institutions. It should be pointed out, 
though, that the stampede is diminishing, 
and we are noticing now a reversal of that 
tendency, born in many instances out of 
economic panic. Lately a number of 
articulate and perceptive people have 
recognized that coeducation is no magic 
encourager of learning; it does not neces- 
sarily solve financial problems; and it 
obscures the fact that a women's college 
is one of the few places where a young 
woman is really a first-class citizen. 

Most important, however, I do not see 
the private women's junior college — and 
certainly Lasell — as anachronistic as long 
as it is serving the purpose that Lasell 
serves — namely, to satisfy the very real 
needs of students who may want or 




require two years of higher education 
either in the form of a self-contained 
degree program or a degree program that 
includes the option of transferring into a 
baccalaureate program in a four-year 
college or a university. Furthermore, 
given the tendency towards restlessness 
that characterizes modern student life and 
the frequency of dropping out after two 
years of college, the junior college 
program has another distinct advantage. 
After two years the student has completed 
a program and has achieved a degree. 

What we must always keep in mind 
is that Lasell is especially well-suited to 
the student who needs a setting that 
nourishes her confidence. Given the 
terrible complexity of today's world and 
the awesome prospect of assuming 
mature responsibility in such a world, it 
is little wonder that a young person of 
seventeen, or eighteen, or nineteen 
should be in a somewhat fragile state of 
mind as she contemplates the future. 
Surely, then, there are many young women 
who need the small college atmosphere 
and the concomitants of individualized 
attention in the classroom that Lasell's 
12-1 student-faculty ratio supplies. Surely 
there are many young women who will 
benefit by sympathetic counseling and 
well-conceived opportunities to grow into 
a confident taking-on of responsibility. 
This kind of young woman is going to be 
well served by Lasell in a way that no 
public community college with its 
emphasis on mass production is ever 
going to be able to serve her. 

Moreover, the junior college, if it 
properly conceives its role, is not going 
to be exerting the same intensity of 
competitiveness initially that the student 
is likely to encounter in a four-year 
college or university. This is not to say 
that the capacity for intellectual develop- 
ment is not present in the Lasell student. 
As a matter of fact, all one needs to do 
is to look at the record of what our 
graduates have accomplished. Those 
who have chosen to go on to further 
education have entered the most re- 
spected professions and have 
distinguished themselves in these pro- 




fessions. They have become doctors and 
lawyers, teachers and administrators. 
Those who have chosen not to go on for 
further formal education have succeeded 
equally in business and in the health 
professions, in banking and the arts. 
Perhaps what is most striking about Lasell 
graduates in the aggregate is the exten- 
sive degree to which they have taken 
leadership roles in their communities, 
serving on boards of educational and 
charitable institutions, promoting com- 
munity cultural life, and shaping social 
and political policy. So Lasell expects a 
good deal of intellectual promise in its 
students. But Lasell also recognizes a 
significant fact of life — namely, that not 
all young people are ready for intense 
intellectual competition at precisely the 
same time. Some may need a little more 
time to develop their capacities or to 
recognize their true interests than others; 
and they need a suitably congenial 
environment in which to develop them. 



Constructive Channeling 

Colleges get young people at a time 
in their lives when they are in a state of 
precarious balance. They have a certain 
degree of sophistication; at the same 
time, being short in years, they are in 
other respects unsophisticated. They both 
crave and reject guidance; they both 
distrust authority and seek it. Within them 
a good deal of prudent stability coexists 
with a good deal of insecurity as they 
regard both the rigors of academic 
pursuits and the complexities of modern 
life. All of this suggests that college life 
is likely to be a continuing exercise in 
paradox, contradiction, and precarious 
balance. Lasell faces this likelihood 
squarely; and we try consequently to be 
sensitive to the needs of the students and 
patient in dealing with them. We do not 
take blunt authoritarian positions. Ours 
is not the position advocated to me by an 
acquaintance who says, "Just tell them 
what to do. Don't ask them. Never ask 
them." This attitude will not cut down 
resistance to authority, nor will it build 
confidence or promote growth. Rather, it 
is incumbent upon us to develop educa- 
tional growth and to create or help to 
create opportunities for the students to 




take on responsibility academically and 
socially. Our mission is to reinforce the 
student's constructive impulses and to do 
so by providing an atmosphere that is 
conducive to learning. This requires, of 
course, careful attention to programs and 
teaching quality and to the providing of 
opportunities for students to assume 
responsibilities in which they have a 
reasonably good chance to succeed. For 
example, we have students on several 
faculty committees, and they often make 
significant contributions to the business 
at hand. A good example of constructive 
channeling of student energies and 
wisdom into a project that helps to 
develop confidence and to serve the 
College as well is an idea conceived by 
our Dean of Students for allocating funds 
for student activities. These funds come 
in through student activities fees and 
must be used to support such activities 
as the newspaper, the year book, the 
drama society, and various clubs. The 
aggregate amount of money is something 
in the neighborhood of $25,000; and the 
requests from various organizations 
served by this fund generally come to 
twice that amount. So at our Dean's 
suggestion, we organized a Fee Com- 
mission, chaired by the Dean and made 
up of a preponderantly student member- 
ship. The job of the commission is to sift 
through the applications for funds to 
determine how $25,000 can be spread out 
among requests for $50,000. This is no 
small responsibility for anyone; and we 
are pleased that our students have been 
doing a very good, systematic, and 
thoughtful job in making the allocations. 
Where they cut budget requests sharply, 
they accompany their cuts with recom- 
mendations as to how the difference 
between the request and the allocation 
might be made up. Where they judge the 
request to have insufficient justification 
they do not hesitate to say so and to 
reject it altogether; and in some instances 
they have increased allocations when, in 
their judgment, the organization's request 
has been too modest to accomplish its 
purpose. 

This is, of course, just one brief 



instance of our being able to establish 
a condition in which the students can 
take on responsibility and proceed 
towards self-assurance that is founded 
on knowledge and experience. When that 
kind of assurance is achieved or the 
student is well on her way towards 
achieving it, we feel that however short 
the two years are that make up the junior 
college educational span, the Lasell 
enterprise has justified itself. 

Over and over I hear from graduates 
and from their parents a recurring 
message — Lasell did wonders for me 
(or for my daughter). Invariably these 
messages touch one way or another on 
the acquisition of self-confidence — on 
the unique impact of the Lasell experience 
that produces dramatic changes in its 
students in two short years. I suspect that 
this special impact, so difficult to define 
in precise terms, also lies at the heart of 
the remarkable attachment so many 
alumnae feel to the College. 

Before coming to Lasell, I had been 
in higher education for a number of years, 
dealing primarily with four-year college 
and university matters. But in the course 
of my work I often encountered transfer 
students, some from Lasell, some from 
other colleges; and often my work 
required that I evaluate their performances 
and form conclusions about the relative 
quality of preparation shown by these 
transfer students. Over a period of several 
years of such involvement, I became 
increasingly aware that Lasell was a 
uniquely distinguished institution as 
measured by its graduates, and it was in 
large part that awareness that interested 
me in coming to Lasell as president. 
Since coming to Lasell and becoming 
more deeply involved in the affairs not 
only of this college but of other two-year 
colleges, and of organizations that 
embrace the whole range of post- 
secondary education, from vocational 
schools through the most prestigious 
universities, I am more than ever con- 
vinced that the Lasell quality of education 
— as reflected in its students, faculty, 
academic programs, trustee commitment, 
alumnae loyalty — is superior. I am equally 



convinced that it can be made even 
better, and that there are certain areas 
clearly marked out for us to improve and 
strengthen. 

Program for '76 

This recognition, shared by an 
enlightened Board of Trustees, has 
materialized into the Program for 76 
which is a four year plan designed to 
make Lasell the finest two-year college, 
for women in the nation. Our 125th 
Anniversary appropriately marks the year 
in which we hope to complete its first 
phase. You will soon be hearing the 
details of the coming capital fund 
campaign formulated to implement the 
program and which is under the pro- 
fessional direction of the Cumerford 
Corporation, with James Stanley, Marjorie 
MacClymon '32, and Joy Stewart Rice '55 
serving as associate directors. With the 
College thus providing full staff support, 
the campaign will be proceeding under 
distinguished volunteer leadership. 

Mr. Alfred C. Edwards, Vice President 
of the Board of Trustees, and formerly 
Chairman of the Board of Holt, Rinehart, 
and Winston, as well as Vice President 
and Director of CBS, is serving as 
Campaign Chairman. Mr. Edwards will be 
assisted by a number of committee 
chairmen, drawn from the ranks of 
trustees, alumnae, parents, and friends. 
The complete structure of the campaign 
team will be announced shortly, but I felt 
that you should all know now that we are 
well under way in our planning. 

The first phase priorities will include 
a Student Center, with ground-breaking 
scheduled within the next few months. We 
recognize that alumnae have considered 
this a pre-eminent need for many years. 
Our students feel the urgency as well and 
are serving on a committee under our 
Dean of Students to assure that the 
building fully meets student needs. 
Though the student center is the first 
priority, other goals falling within the 
scope of phase 1 of the campaign include 
the provision of a fine arts facility and the 
replacement of certain obsolete housing 
by new residential facilities. 



Equally important, we feel, is the 
need for adding to the financial aid 
program, as college costs continue to 
rise; and we plan therefore to make a 
concerted effort to attract endowment 
funds that will produce income to be used 
for scholarships. The Faculty, which is so 
much the heart of any institution, quite 
frankly needs very significant recognition 
in terms of higher salaries. Partly because 
of an American tradition of which many 
of us do not enthusiastically approve, the 
greater financial rewards in the academic 
world have gone to publishing scholars 
rather than to excellent teachers. Lasell 
is a teaching institution. This is our 
greatest strength — not only that we are 
a teaching institution but that we are a 
fine teaching institution. We have not 
been wealthy in the sense of having 
liberal operating income to feed into 
faculty salaries, and yet we have a faculty 
that should be recognized for its teaching 
merits and for its dedication on the 
personal level to the quality of student 
life. Our campaign, consequently, must 
include a very substantial endowment 
goal to improve salaries. 

As I think of the contrast in higher 
education between the rewards given to 
teaching faculty and to publishing faculty, 
I am mindful of a passage in Gullivers 
Travels where Swift puts into the mouth 
of a rational idealist the observation that 
the man who can make "two blades of 
grass grow upon a spot of ground where 
only one grew before" deserves "better 
of mankind . . . than the whole race of 
politicians put together." Without trying 
in any way to get into a controversy 
regarding grass-growers and politicians, 
I would suggest that there is something 
of an analogy between Swift's example 
and the disparity of rewards offered the 
teaching teacher and the publishing 
teacher. One might say that the teacher 
who can teach his student to write a 
sound English sentence deserves more 
from mankind than the whole race of 
literary critics put together. As a former 
English professor and an admirer of some 



literary critics, I would not want to press 
the analogy too far, but if it sounds like 
an over-dramatic statement, it is so by 
design to emphasize the importance of 
upgrading the salary structure for our 
faculty. This is one area in which we 
indisputably need strengthening. 

We also need funds for additional 
educational resources. I refer not to the 
gimmickry that was washed up on the 
educational shores in the tidal wave of 
the new technology. What we need are 
audio-visual resources of proven 
instructional worth, additional acquisitions 
and equipment for our library, and human 
resources involving visiting specialists, 
stimulating conferences and new 
programs, all of which are needed to 
enrich the educational life at Lasell. 

And so our Program for 76 — our 
major capital campaign — is designed to 
strengthen our institution so that it will be 
able to take an unchallenged place in the 
vanguard of higher education at the two- 
year level in the year that marks its 125th 
Anniversary. As the campaign proceeds, 
you will be hearing from us. Our plans 
have been carefully made and are geared 
to a schedule that is conceived to give 
us the best chance of achieving our 
goals. Though it would not be practicable 
for us to attempt to reach all constituen- 
cies at the same time, no one will be 
deprived of an opportunity to assist the 
College. The campaign will not be over in 
six months or even a year. In due course 
all of you will be hearing from us! You 
may may be sure, too, that any time 
you wish to contact my office, I will be 
happy to talk with you about the details 
of the campaign program and its im- 
portance to the College. Before very 
long, explanatory and descriptive 
literature will be reaching you, and I 
will be reporting to you at frequent 
intervals on the progress of the campaign. 
Meanwhile, I hope it is clear that Lasell is 
vitally active and has vigorously com- 
mitted itself to move towards a great 
future which the College alumnae have 
shared prominently in shaping.

CLASS NOTES 



'02 

Alice Mott Stewart '01-02 writes: 
"Was so glad to receive the recent 
bulletin and to see a picture of Prof. 
Winslow, whom I recall with pleasure. 
He taught 'my' Chemistry class; am 
delighted he is so favorably remem- 
bered and honored. Another of my 
favorite teachers was Miss Austin; 
she and Prof. Winslow were married 
not long after I left. She was a sweet 
person — the marriage was no sur- 
prise! Incidentally, I am still cor- 
responding with a friend I made 
during the year I attended the Sem- 
inary — have seen her but once since. 
She is Mary Goodwin Olmsted of 
Connecticut." 

'07 




Clara Huttenbaur Levy '07 and Grand- 
son Robert 



From Clara Nims: "In November 
Julia Potter Schmidt '06 spent a 
week with me. She visited relatives 
and friends in California before going 
to Florida where she will spend the 
winter with her daughter." 

'09 

We share Constance Blackstock's 
Yuletide letter with her many Lasell 
friends: "A Merry Christmas! May it 
be a very joyous one as families 
gather together to celebrate this hap- 
piest of holidays. 

"In the midst of so much conflict, 
our hearts are full of thanks for the 
abundance of good will that is ex- 



tended to those in need. 

"God grant that 1973 may see the 
end of the senseless bombing in 
Indochina. . . . May the New Year 
also see the end of terrorism in the 
Middle East. Our prayers go out for 
the problems confronting the Christ- 
ian Church and Community all over 
the world. Some of us naturally think 
of those places where we have 
worked. We pray for special wisdom 
at this time for the leaders of 
Christian education in Pakistan. . . . 

"However, in the midst of all these 
conflicts we find many rays of hope. 
My prayer for you this Christmas and 
New Year is the Old Gaelic one: 
May the roads rise with you 
And the wind be always at your back, 
And may the Lord hold you in the 

hollow of His hand." 

'10 

From Secretary Marion Hale Bot- 
tomley: "The Holidays brought 
messages from six classmates. Re- 
membering that it has been 62 years 
since our Lasell graduation, I think 
the response is fine! A very lovely 
calendar came from Nell Carneai 
Drew, who gave her winter address: 
3024 N. E. Center Avenue, Fort 
Lauderdale, Fla. Tot McLean Hunt 
wrote mainly about the grandchildren 
— Hara is teaching English to French 
children in Quebec City. The other 
three grandchildren are either in 
business or in college. Milded Snyder 
Grant is living in a retirement home 
at 825 Jefferson Street, New Orleans, 
La. 10115. She is not too far from her 
daughter's home. Daughter Betty 
Grant Smith (Lasell '41) lives in 
Beaumont, Texas; Walter, Jr. is in 
Pascagoula; her married son, an 
intern at Parkland Hospital in Dallas, 
has been entertained by Tot McLean 
Hunt. Julia Hamilton Peters' beautiful 
card was a copy of her son's painting 
— a group of elk in the western 
mountains. Last summer Julia and 
her brother enjoyed an Alaskan vaca- 
tion — via ship through the Inland 
Passage. Julia now lives, year round, 
at Country Club Towers Apartment 
in Great Falls, Montana. Irma Levi 
Levy continues to enjoy bridge, 



18 



parties and the 80° weather in Sara- 
sota, Florida. Her oldest grandson is 
now associated with a large law firm. 
Margherita Dike Hallberg, now a 
great-grandmother, keeps active and 
enjoys life in Laguna Hills, California. 

'18 

Harriet Fera French reports sister 
Lavinia's (Fera McKinney '16) 50th 
wedding anniversary "a gala occa- 
sion. Lavinia received letters from 
her Lasell roommate, Lena Hauck 
Johnson, and her torch-bearer, Jo- 
sephine Burt Wright '17." 

'21 

Sarah Pauline Wild Gordon and 
husband divide their time between 
homes in Pasadena and Alamos, 
Mexico. Earlier this year they enjoyed 
a delightful cruise via private yacht 
from New York, through the Panama 
Canal, up the Pacific to Acapulco. 

'22 

Mr. George Harris, husband of 
Margot Lovering, died suddenly on 
January 11, 1973. The Class extends 
sincere sympathy to Margot, to her 
son and to daughter Ann Harris 
Hughes '55. 

'23 

The Sunshine Society of Walden, 
New York acknowledged Dorothy 
Millspaugh as their Sunshine Lady — 
Woman of the Year for 1972. Dorothy 
was born in Walden and grew up in 
the Sunshine Society founded by her 
grandmother and continued by her 
mother. Most of her life she has been 
involved in Girl Scouting and also 
has been an active member of the 
Walden Woman's Club. She is on its 
executive board and has served 
several years as chairman of the 
Cabin maintenance committee. 



'26 

Margaret Anderson Gage writes: 



"Have just finished reading and en- 
joying the Lasell Bulletin, and having 
spent two very happy years at Lasell, 
I would like to make a contribution 
to the G. M. Winslow Bookshelf in 
memory of Mariesta Howland Bloom, 
our Class Secretary who kept track 
of us all. It is always with regret that 
I find nothing in the 1926 Class 
Column. Last summer my former 
roommate, Frances Vail Pollack, 
visited us, and at Christmas I had a 
lovely letter from Minerva Damon 
Ludewig, who reported a grand time 
at 1927's Reunion. And there were 
notes from Madeline Roth White, Dot 
Hale Brown and Marion Brown 
Schlosser. 

"Last fall my husband and I — he is 
a Stanford graduate and Harvard 
Business School '26 — were looking 
forward to a New England tour. We 
had planned to stop over at the end 
of the tour in Boston and once again 
visit Lasell and Harvard. Unfortu- 
nately, my husband suffered a stroke 
in May; we hope to make the tour 
in September '73. If so, Lasell is a 
must." 



'27 

Pauline LeClaire Reiter has been 
installed as president of the Woman's 
Auxiliary to the Medical and Chirurgi- 
cal Faculty of the State of Maryland. 
She is a charter member of the 
Woman's Auxiliary to the Baltimore 
City Medical Society and served as 
its president in 1969 and 1970. Polly 
and Dr. Reiter, whose specialty is 
internal medicine, have two children. 
Their son, Robert Jr., lives in Balti- 
more and has three children. Daugh- 
ter, Ann Sargent Reiter, received her 
BS degree in nursing at the Univer- 
sity of Maryland and is now working 
for the Veterans Administration Hos- 
pital in Washington, D.C. The Reiters 
have traveled extensively throughout 
this country, the British Isles, Europe 
and the Middle East. Polly's ties with 
medicine are evidenced not only 
through her marriage and medical 
auxiliary work, but also through her 
hobby, studying the history of medi- 
cine. 



'31 

Excerpts from Karin Eliasson Mon- 
roe's Christmas letter: "The Monroes 
have become devoted Islanders here 
in this beautiful small community 
(Coronado, Calif.) surrounded by 
good friends including many of 
Hank's U.S.N. A. classmates who will 
be celebrating their 40th reunion this 
coming year. Our Kay, at seventeen, 
is an enthusiastic High School Senior 
— very active in all sports and stu- 
dent government. In anticipation of 
college next year, we visited many 
California colleges during her spring 
vacation. In late summer we had a 
glorious month's visit out here with 
our Sally, John, Christopher (who will 
be three on Christmas Day), and their 
precious new little Jennifer. The 
Longs (Ann and Dave with Karin, 7, 
and Kristin, 4,) continue to enjoy 
Germany but really look forward to 
stateside leave next summer. 

"On September 25, we celebrated 
our 30 wonderful years together at 
a dinner party with friends, after 
which, as a complete surprise to the 
bride, the groom drove her to the 
DelCoronado Hotel where he had 
reserved the Bridal Suite replete with 
champagne and flowers — a perfect 
celebration except the bride had to 
leave her groom at 8 a.m. to go home 
to 'bake a cake' for the church. How- 
ever, she returned to the suite and 
we toasted another 30 years." 



'32 

The new — and "retirement" — ad- 
dress for Helen Champane Trook is 
Box 165, Hancock, N.H. 03449. 
Helen's son, David, is Expedition 
Coordinator for Educational Ex- 
peditions International (EEI), a non- 
profit organization which develops 
and manages field expeditions led by 
distinguished scientists to research 
sites around the world. EEI was 
established for the purpose of involv- 
ing small, carefully-selected groups 
of enthusiastic and responsible non- 
specialists in actual physical partici- 
pation in field research. These 
expeditions are not tours but are 



19 



bona fide research projects made 
accessible, under the auspices of 
Educational Expeditions International 
and the Smithsonian Institution, to 
those special persons who are stim- 
ulated by adventure. 

'35 

Barbara Heath Ramsay plans to 
return to "winter in Florida" after 
spending the holidays in Cleveland. 
She enjoys frequent visits with Molly 
Upham Menges, a winter resident of 
Placida. 

Ever one of the "busiest," Harriet 
Colwell Reeves reports: "All the 
Reeves Clan will be together during 
Christmas Week. Ann (Reeves Schmid 
'58), John, Lindsey and Robert will 
come from Lexington, Kentucky. John 
has received a promotion; they will 
move to Falls Church, Virginia after 
the first of the year. Probably the 
happiest event of the year was 
the 'homecoming' of Nancy (Reeves 
Peterson '66), Gary and Kelly to 
Akron in June after two years with 
Uncle Sam at Fort McClellan, Ala- 
bama. Dr. Gary established practice 
with a fine senior doctor in Akron — 
they have a new home — and for 
them, this will be a particularly 
happy Christmas! Alice (Reeves '66) 
is as busy as a beaver during the 
year as special events coordinator of 
O'Neils, the department store group 
of the May Company Chain. For her 
there have been many trips, including 
New York and a spectacular fashion 
show in October — "Bravo Italiano!" 
Katy turned 18 in March; graduated 
from Old Trail High School in June, 
winning the French Award. Spent 
June and July studying in France; 
enrolled as a freshman at Depauw 
University in September. Pledged 
Delta Gamma — made the tennis team! 

"It was one of the busiest years 
ever for RLR — United Fund, Jr. 
Achievement and Stan Hywet Foun- 
dation Campaigns in Akron. There 
was considerable business traveling 
including three trips to Europe. Har- 
riet? Busy as ever, including City 
Hospital and the 'Potted Planters' 
group. Yep — a busy year — and much 
to be thankful for in 1972! All of us 



wish for all of you — Good health and 
Much happiness throughout the New 
Year." 



'36 



Audrey Smith Henderson says: 
"Here's some news — taken from 
Christmas cards. Am sure it will be 
of interest for the LEAVES: 

From Peg Pearl Ide: Sometimes 
wonder if I'll ever make it back to a 
Lasell Reunion. We are rapidly reach- 
ing the end of family graduations — 
so perhaps there is hope. We're 
looking forward to having Mary, her 
husband and their new son, Ben- 
jamin, home for Christmas vacation. 
That makes four grandchildren for 
us — Tim has two boys and a girl. 
Rob, our youngest, is at UVM, en- 
gaged to a wonderful girl — there will 
be another Ide wedding this summer. 

From Phyl Gunn Rodgers: Art and 
I are waiting anxiously to hear from 
Burlington, Vermont — Alan and wife 
Peggy have just made us grand- 
parents for the first time. We are 
busily engaged in discussing col- 
leges, courses, loans, scholarships 
and other pertinent information — Pam 
really wants a degree in Music Edu- 
cation with a liberal arts background. 

From Marge Bassett MacMillan: 
Another good year for us — Betsy 
(MacMillan Blackledge '62) and David 
have moved to Clovis, N.M.; Jeanni 
and Bob are in Boston; John and 
Cindy in Orange, N.J. Scott grad- 
uated from Tufts in June and is 
working for a Boston engineering 
firm. Nancy is with us — commuting 
to Katherine Gibbs in New York. 
Gordon keeps almost too busy with 
the Lodge (which he enjoys) and the 
never-ending home-owner's chores 
(not so enjoyable). I finally stopped 
talking about going back to work and 
did something about it — took a part- 
time job in September in the Field 
Service Department of Scholastic 
Magazines. 

From Marjorie Reed Colley: Bunt 
was in a serious automobile accident 
in Eastham in July 72 — spent 73 
days in the Hyannis Hospital. Haven't 
seen anyone from Lasell this year. 

From Ginny Johnston Loud: We've 



bought a small retirement home in 
Chatham, but won't move until this 
one is sold. 

From Natalie Hutchison Clouser: I 
retired on June 1st ('72) and love 
it!!! 

From Helen Saul Foxwell: Dave 
graduated from college in June and 
was married on November 18th. We 
are very happy to have a daughter-in- 
law; they live in an apartment about 
12 miles from us. 

From Adelaide Seeley Bull: Happy 
to report I am quite recovered from 
two years of surgery and assorted 
ailments. 

From Deb York: All's quiet on the 
Florida front — too quiet!!! 

From Bili Baxter Perkins: Many 
memorable events occured this year 
— May 26th was most important of 
all . . . RETIREMENT! We have done 
so much since then that I sometimes 
wonder if Ray is "retired" or "re- 
tired." Early in June we headed west 
to two very different conventions. 
First to Houston, Texas for the Rotary 
International — on to Palm Springs, 
Calif, to the Classic Thunderbird 
Club International Concours, limited 
to owners of 1955-56-57 T-Bird autos. 
One week after returning to Sarasota, 
in July, our bags were repacked, the 
station wagon loaded and we headed 
for our summer home in Christmas 
Cove, Maine. We avoided the main 
highways; had a delightful trip. In 
mid-October we started South, once 
again taking the "back roads" — 
enjoyed the fall foliage and ran into 
soft, sticky snow in Virginia — just 
enough to be beautiful. It made us 
realize we are thankful to be living 
where we can remember it fondly 
and not have to cope with it. We are 
enjoying our first winter in the home 
we have owned for three years — 
should any Lasell friends be in the 
area, do come over and say Hello. 
Our address: Forest Lakes Country 
Club Estates, 3541 Sea View Street, 
Sarasota, Fla. 33580. 

Audrey closes with a personal 
note: "Nothing much new here. We 
enjoy our little house on the lake — 
and a bit of leisure time, which per- 
mits even doing things like this!!! 
Best wishes to all for 1973."

'37 

Augusta Williamson Lips was "so 
sorry to miss Reunion. Son Pieter 
graduated from Kent State and is 
fortunate to have a job in his special 
field of Graphic Design." 

Of Special Interest: Weddings. 
Elisabeth M. Allicon, daughter of 
Glennys Preston Allicon, and Paul 
Clement on May 13, 1972 at Essex 
Junction Vermont. Constance M. 
Arnold, daughter of Edith Fitzgerald 
Arnold, and Kirk L. Ramsauer on 
June 11, 1972 at Winchester, Mass. 
Diana Gray and Richard P. Higgins, 
son of Louise Tardivel Higgins, on 
August 12, 1972 in McLean, Virginia. 

'39 

Cora Pratt Adams issues an invita- 
tion to travelers to Mexico: "Please 
do get in touch — we are rebuilding 
an old Mexican house in Ajijic. We 
will be there from October through 
April. The address: 45A Indepen- 
dencia, Ajijic, Jalisco." 

And Harriet Tifft Longley would 
"enjoy meeting Lasell friends or 
classmates for lunch at the Wellesley 
Inn." Harriet is retired after spending 
15 years as an interior decorator in 
Wellesley. Son Jonathan is now on 
trans-Atlantic duty with the Navy; 
Fletcher, a MBA major at Boston 
University; Jane attends Babson. 

To quote from the Christmas letter 
of Allison (Starr) and Harold Elrod: 
"We're still chuckling at Erma 
Bombeck's hilarious commentary on 
Christmas newsletters, joshing their 
so-full-of-all-good-things style! But 
let's face it, Christmas is a time to 
keep in touch with good friends, and 
who wants to listen to complaints? 
Actually, 1972 has been a good year. 
Our younger daughter, Carolyn, was 
married on August 12th to James 
Taylor of Mamaroneck, N.Y. They 
now live in White Plains; Carolyn 
continues to teach 4th grade here in 
Pleasantville. Older daughter, Joanne, 
made us grandparents for the second 
time with the birth on December 5th 
of Kimberley Elizabeth Layburn. Jo- 
anne, Don, Jennifer and Kim live 
in Ellington, Conn. Terry is now in 



his junior year at Columbia, taking a 
double major in psychology and 
statistics. Last summer he worked 
at Sleepy Hollow Restorations, which 
feature early Dutch habitations on the 
Hudson River. Right after the August 
wedding, we vanished to Maine. 
Allison took her brushes and oils and 
Harold, his newly acquired camera. 
At York, an inquiry at the library 
turned up some interesting genealogy 
involving Indian massacres and the 
like, and an old ancestral home (circa 
1680) still standing just back of York 
Beach. We wish for each of you, a 
healthy and happy year." 

'40 

A brief — and too brief — summary 
of the year 1972 for Pat Kieser: 
"Spent three days in Chicago in 
January at a library seminar, and 
audited a new class in Reference and 
Government Documents. Attended a 
Special Libraries Association con- 
vention in Boston in early June; a 
Zonta conference in Columbus (I am 
secretary of the Toledo club); on to 
Cincinnati for Ohio Library Associa- 
tion business. After a week of jury 
duty — a most interesting experience 
— Mother and I spent a long October 
weekend in Toronto — another fine 
experience was a tour of the new 
Blair Museum of Lithopanes in 
Toledo — the largest collection in the 
world. In late August a friend and I 
flew to Seattle, picked up a rental 
car and $50 worth of freeze-dried 
foods, and drove to Olympic National 
Park, a backpacker's paradise with 
over 600 miles of trails. We talked 
with many fine young people on the 
trails; loved the beauty and variety of 
the Park. Early in January '73 I shall 
accompany an artist friend to an 
ancient Mayan city on the Usumacinta 
River, on the border of Chiapas and 
Guatemala on the Yucatan peninsula. 
We'll fly to Merida, explore Chichen 
Itza and Uxmal, take the train to 
Palenque and its wonderful ruins; 
hire a helicopter to take us to Yax- 
chilan, deep in the jungle." 

'41 

Two "open letters" for the Class of 



1941 have been received from Cali- 
fornia. Class President, Louise Lorion 
DeVries, writes from 5213 Conant 
Street in Long Beach: "It's always 
fun to get the LEAVES — to hear of all 
the improvements at the College — the 
many new buildings — the current crop 
of students. Do wish more '41-ers 
would send family news. I am now 
co-ordinating teacher for the Child 
Study Center at Long Beach City 
College. Love it!!! Also continue to 
take a course a semester — just to 
keep mentally alert. The DeVries 
family is growing and spreading 
'round the world. We have four 
granddaughters, living close by so 
we can enjoy them. One son lives in 
San Francisco; our youngest son, 
Jim, and his wife are missionary 
teachers in a public high school in 
Ghana, Africa. When I am brave 
enough to have all the necessary 
'shots,' we hope to visit them!!! We 
have lived in Long Beach for 21 years 
and still think it is a wonderful place 
despite smog and taxes!!! Let's hear 
from more of you soon." 

And from 4402 Los Feliz Boulevard 
#201, Los Angeles, comes this word 
from Barbara Hover Lomma: 
Dear Girls, 

Must confess, I have not been a 
very good alumna having neglected 
you for so many years. However, 
back and forth to Europe with a 
period of two and a half years of liv- 
ing in Italy have made me hard to 
find. Then, too, it is hard to realize 
that it has been over thirty years 
since we were all together. 

I have a beautiful third husband 
and have never been happier. Also 
have seven grandchildren. My oldest 
daughter is married to a psychiatrist; 
#2 is the wife of a physicist; and my 
baby (23) is single and living in 
London where she is acting and sing- 
ing. She has worked with Fellini and 
will be back in Rome after the Christ- 
mas holidays. She speaks Italian, 
Spanish and French; adores London 
and this summer traveled with us for 
six weeks on the continent — was a 
big help with the language barrier. 

Me? I am a swinging grandmother, 
busy and writing a book. Would love 
to hear from Lasell friends — especi- 



21 



ally Ruthie McLaughlin Walsh. Are 
there any classmates living in Cali- 
fornia? Do hope 1973 brings all the 
best to all of you. 

. . . B. H. L.- 
Betty McGrath Brown reports: "Our 
oldest son, Jeff, is engaged to a 
lovely young gal — they are now 
juniors at Northwestern; plan an 
August wedding. Rob is sending ap- 
plications to colleges — his #1 choice 
is Cornell. The McGrath clan plans to 
be together on Christmas Eve in 
Cincinnati. Mary's (McGrath Linnen- 
berg '40) youngest son is a freshman 
at Bowling Green." 

Lucille Hooker Paterson accounts 
for her family in Barre, Vermont: "Bill 
is a senior at Keene State in the In- 
dustrial Education Program, and is a 
member of the Ski Team; Joanne is a 
Med. Lab. secretary at Mary Fletcher 
Hospital in Burlington; I'm in my tenth 
year at the Guidance Office at 
Spaulding — never a dull moment! In 
April we had a week's vacation in 
Bermuda — to celebrate our 25th wed- 
ding anniversary." 

'42 

The Class extends sincere sym- 
pathy to Arline Krider Roberts, whose 
mother passed away on October 9, 
1972.

For The Beckers (Doris Oneal) 
1972 proved a bountiful, exciting 
and fulfilling year. For Dorie it un- 
folded in January when she was 
ordained and installed as an Elder 
in the Presbyterian Church at 
Pluckemin. She finds her position as 
treasurer and member of the Board 
for the Pluckemin Nursery School 
challenging and absorbing. Once a 
month she (with four other gals) 
meets and works with a senior citi- 
zen group. During the spring and fall 
months day trips were planned and 
during the winter arts and crafts 
workshops were held. Dorie is still 
active in the local garden club; works 
as a volunteer each week at the 
Bedminster Library and has joined 
the Chapel Bell Choir at church.

Another '52 daughter, applying for 
admission to Lasell, is Shelly Smith 
of Scottsdale, Arizona. Shelly's 
mother, Joanne Stillwell, writes of 
the family's activities: "Son Brad 
presently plans a profession in the 
medical field and has a running start 
at it as a member of the National 
Honor Society and the Future Medi- 
cal Students of Saguaro High School. 
Kathy, a student at Arizona State 
University, is a member of Alpha 
Lambda Delta, a National Honor 
Sorority, and has just become en- 
gaged to Patrick Valentine Kern. 
Shelly is a member of Zeta Gamma 
Phi, a high school Christian service 
sorority; has learned the game of 
football this year — when you're in 
Sun Devil Country it's either that or 
sit and talk to the walls. Jacque is an 
incredible athlete, excelling in most 



sports, but has still to learn that you 
don't beat the boys at their own 
game. Paul and I are about the same; 
he's still traveling over land and now 
sea, and I'm doing a few flicks and 
commercials (what else does one do 
with perpetual dishpan hands). Very 
best good wishes to all Lasell friends 
— how I wish I might have been in 
Auburndale for our 20th!" 

Joan Fischer Bell thoughtfully 
sends a new address: 180 Riverside

From Sylvia Pfeiffer Nesslinger: 
"Our lives have become busier than 
ever. My husband is now the Director 
of Highways for the State of Ohio; 
has written five chapters for a book 
on Right-of-Way Acquisitions which 
will be used as a course text by 
schools and businesses. A year ago 
we became guardians for two nieces 
— now we have four girls and a son — 
ages 10, 14, 14 1 / 2 (son Karl), 15 1 /2 
and 16. About two months ago we 
'adopted' an aging stray beagle — we 
are so glad — she is very sweet. One 
niece, a fine horsewoman, came with 
a pinto named Pete — and in addition, 
a gerbil!!! Our oldest daughter, Marcy 
graduates from high school in June — 
having completed that phase of her 
education in three years. She has 
been accepted at Virginia Intermont 
College, Bristol, Va. Karl, an enthusi- 
astic athlete, became an Eagle Scout 
last July. The other children are in- 
volved in activities too numerous to 
mention. They do, however, keep us 
busy. Ness and I had a delightful late 
November holiday in Phoenix. Very 
best good wishes to all."

From Laura Siegel: "Although I 
have been delinquent in keeping in 
touch with the Alumnae Office, it was 
not because of a lack of interest. Be- 
fore I bring you up-to-date on what I 
have been doing, I just want to rem- 
inisce a bit about my stay at Lasell. 

"Going to Lasell for my first two 
years of college life was the best pos- 
sible way to start my college educa- 
tion. One of the greatest assets at 
Lasell was the relationship between 
teacher and pupil. Some of the teach- 
ers invited students to come to their 
homes for casual get-togethers and 
they took a genuine interest in our 
human attributes as well. 

"My life at Lasell was very full. I 
met some wonderful people whom I 
try to keep in touch with and will 
never forget. I became involved in 
theatre with Mr. Haney, taught folk 
guitar once a week at a Unitarian 
church in Newton, and went to the 
Lyman Reform School once a week to 



work with the boys there. My experi- 
ences at the Lyman School were very 
rich and I will never forget them. 

"As far as my education at Lasell, 
I profited very much from my educa- 
tion courses there and learned a 
great deal from Mrs. Muriel Sheppard. 

"After graduating Lasell, I trans- 
ferred to C.W. Post College on Long 
Island. Although they finally accepted 
my full sixty-three credits, I have to 
go an extra semester in order to sat- 
isfy their requirements. I will be stu- 
dent teaching this September and will 
graduate in January. After I graduate 
I hope to go back to Boston and get 
employment there. 

"I miss Boston and miss Lasell very 
much. Thanks for a great two years."

Via Aerogramme: Dear Friends: 
Having graduated from Lasell in 1970 
and now in Australia, we would be 
very interested in what is happening 
to Lasell and our friends. Would you 
kindly send the alumnae magazine 
so we might catch up on our Alma 
Mater. We left the East in early 
August '72 for a trip across the U.S.A. 
In San Francisco we caught a ship 
bound for Australia. After a fantastic 
cruise of five weeks — including 
Hawaii, Japan, Hong Kong, the Phil- 
lipines — we landed in Sydney. We are 
now in the process of getting regis- 
tered as nurses — 'sisters,' as we are 
called here. Meanwhile we've taken 
a month's trip around-through-and 
into Australia — an amazing country 
and we're very excited about it. If 
other Lasellites are headed this way, 
we'd enjoy hearing from them.
